LYNNE MATALLANA, PRESIDENT AND FOUNDER OF THE NATIONAL FIBROMYALGIA ASSOCIATION AND A FIBROMYALGIA PATIENT: Lynne was diagnosed with fibromyalgia in August 1995 after seeing 37 doctors. The intensity of the disorder caused her to spend two years in bed. Her frustration with the lack of treatments and support for people with fibromyalgia inspired her to create the National Fibromyalgia Association. During the past 11 years, the NFA has grown into a major force in the efforts to help improve the quality of life for people with fibromyalgia.
